As Pilot Pete's season of The Bachelor is coming to an end, fans began speculating who would be the chosen female for the next season of The Bachelorette!
Wait no more.. ABC just announced that Clare Crawley will officially continue her journey to finding love as she becomes The Bachelorette for season 16 of the franchise!
If you're asking, "Who is she?" WELL -- she was the runner up on Juan Pablo's season! Remember this iconic moment when she completely told him off??
Clare Crawley will officially be the oldest Bachelorette in franchise history at 38 years old!
Clare sat down with Lara Spencer to chat about her new endeavors as the Bachelorette!
She said on GMA Monday:
“I feel like a lot of people put age out there as this negative thing, but for me, it just is more years under my belt, more learning and knowing what I want, what I don’t want, and what I won’t settle for"
She's been looking for love on TV for quite some time! She's been on three different shows! In 2014 she joined the first season of "Bachelor in Paradise' but quit during week 5. She then returned for season 2 the following summer and was eliminated during week 3. THEN in 2018, Clare competed on The Bachelor Winter Games -- she ended up leaving the show single but got engaged to the Bachelorette Canada's, Benoit Beausejour-Savard, but ended up splitting in April 2018!
